Malcolm Webber is still grieving the loss of his partner of twenty years to cancer. He’s buried his mind and feelings in his legal work and isn’t looking for another relationship. He isn’t expecting to feel such a strong attraction when he meets Hans Erickson—especially since the man is quite a bit younger than him.
Hans is an adventure writer with an exciting lifestyle to match. When he needs a tax attorney to straighten out an error with the IRS, he ends up on the other side of the handsome Malcolm’s desk. The heat between them is undeniable, but business has to come first. When it’s concluded, Hans leaps on the chance to make his move.
Malcolm isn’t sure he’s ready for the next chapter in his life. Hans is so young and active that Malcolm worries he won’t be able to hold his interest for long. Just when he’s convinced himself to take the risk and turn the page, problems at the law office threaten to end their love story before it can really begin.

Malcolm Webber is a fifty something, successful Tax Lawyer with a well known firm. His life is a mundane series of well planned routines filled with business meetings and clients. He hasn't done anything out of the ordinary for well over a year, since the loss of his husband and partner of two decades died. A new client seeking assistance with a legal matter has Malcolm actually feeling something for the first time in a long time. And then a chance encounter with that former client while out for dinner with his brother threatens change.
Hans Erickson is an acclaimed Author with incredible blue eyes, a slight Swedish accent and a body to die for. Ten years Malcolm's junior, he sets his sights on the gorgeous silver fox and before long, Malcolm won't know what hit him. It's difficult for him to let go of a past he's been clinging to for so long though. Hans is patient, kind and gentle. Going out of his way to prove to Malcolm that age is just a number. And it would seem he's done just that, but then some devastating news hits way too close to home and threatens to tear these two apart before they've had a chance to get comfortable together.
I really enjoy reading this author's books mostly because of his keen eye for descriptives and details. Every subject he tackles he does well because he does the research needed for that topic. I struggled a bit with this book though. While I completely understood Malcolm's hesitation to move on and his issue with the age difference between him and Hans, I felt it went too far over into the angst category. Grey countered Malcolm's hesitation with Hans never ending patience and the saving grace, for me at least, was when a crack was shown in Hans patient exterior. It truly gave the character more depth and realism.
My favorite aspect to this story in particular, aside from the articulation of Malcolm's life and feelings, was the relationship as it grew day by day between him and Hans. I enjoyed seeing them slowly grow closer and compliment each other as the relationship solidified. The story progressed slowly, but steadily, and I was completely drawn in from start to finish. If you're looking for a story that is somewhat a May/December romance, a story about loss, grieving and finding your way back to love and happiness, you should definitely add this one to your reading list. But that's just my two cents.
Making the world sexier, one reader at a time is Grey's motto.
